Police officer Jeronimo Yanez has been found not guilty on all three counts stemming from the shooting death of Philando Castile which took place back in July of 2016. Castile was shot five times by Yanez during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, MN after informing the officer that he was carrying a gun. Yanz told the courts he continued to direct the victim not to reach for his gun. Castile later died as a passenger streamed video live via Facebook.
Yanez has been cleared of a count of manslaughter as well as two lesser counts.
